Waiting on Wednesday: Rift (Nightshade Prequel #1) by Andrea Cremer


(“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.)

Here is one book that I have been waiting on:


Rift (Nightshade Prequel #1) by Andrea Cremer

To be released – August 7th 2012

Chronicling the rise of the Keepers, this is the stunning prequel to Andrea Cremer’s internationally bestselling Nightshade trilogy!
Sixteen-year-old Ember Morrow is promised to a group called Conatus after one of their healers saves her mother’s life. Once she arrives, Ember finds joy in wielding swords, learning magic, and fighting the encroaching darkness loose in the world. She also finds herself falling in love with her mentor, the dashing, brooding, and powerful Barrow Hess. When the knights realize Eira, one of their leaders, is dabbling in dark magic, Ember and Barrow must choose whether to follow Eira into the nether realm or to pledge their lives to destroying her and her kind.
With action, adventure, magic, and tantalizing sensuality, this book is as fast-paced and breathtaking as the Nightshade novels

I am a huge fan of Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade series and I just cannot wait for Rift to be released. Don’t you think it sounds good? I know I do especially after I read this EXCERPT.

In case you haven’t checked out the Nightshade series here is a link to a short novella:

    You know…this actually sounds more interesting to me than Nightshade haha. I wasn’t too crazy over Nightshade but after that description I really want to read this one. I wonder if you need to read all of the Nightshade books to be able to understand what’s going on in this one? Great pick!

  3. Tiffany Drew says:

    I haven’t read this series either, but I have seen a million and one good things about it. Maybe I will finally pick it up one day!

    Thanks for stopping by Book Cover Justice 🙂

  4. Sandy @ Scribing Shadows says:

    Oh I didn’t know this book was a prequel, I thought it was another sequel to the Nightshade series. I haven’t read any of the books so my knowledge on them is pretty low xD. I might have to check out the Novella. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  5. Maja says:

    I was not a fan of Nightshade at all, but I’m very willing to give Cremer another chance. Hopefully this one will be better.
    Great pick.

  6. Melissa says:

    I haven’t read that series but it’s pretty cool that the author wrote another one. Maybe I’ll give this series a try. Thanks for stopping by today 🙂

    I’ve seen so many good reviews of Andrea Cremer’s books. Great choice. The plot sounds action packed and the cover’s awesome. I wouldn’t want to mess with her!

  8. Chandra @ Unabridged Bookshelf says:

    I loved the Nightshade series, I still have to read Bloodrose. I keep putting it off, because I don’t want it to end. I just won a copy of Rift, so I guess it is time to read Bloodrose, and move on to the prequel series! Great Pick! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my WoW!

  9. Gwenyth Love says:

    I can’t believe I haven’t read this series yet…I have all the books just waiting on my shelves at home! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Let me know what you think or if you have a question!
